CHILDREN aged from eight months to four years joined Peppa Pig on a village walk to raise money for Save The Children.

The tots from Townsend Barn nursery at Poulshot, near Devizes, put their best foot forward for a sponsored Muddy Puddle Walk on Thursday that co-incided with similar events around the country.

Nursery deputy manager Emily Marsh said: "All the children were very exciting to see Peppa Pig it was lovely to see their faces. a lot of them wanted to hold her hand during the walk which went around our own woodland garden and out into the village.

"We covered around 2k with the youngest children in pushchairs."

The walk, which was undertaken by 32 children and a number of staff, has raised about £250 for the charity. Mrs Marsh said: "We are very pleased with the total.

"It is the first time we have raised money for Save The Children but we have done things for other charities in the past. It was very good fun and we all enjoyed it."
